Car Magazine got the first official images of the Audi A1, the first VW group models built around its new MQB formula (that’s platform boffin-speak for modular transverse matrix). The new platform will help all the Audi models to be $1000 cheaper.

The upcoming A1 will be available in four different versions: three-door hatch, five-door hatch, a two-door coupe and an open-top model.

The A1 will be equipped with four-wheel drive system and will be powered by five different derivatives of the same 1.4-litre petrol. With and without turbo, the power output ratings are 65, 85, 105, 140 and 170bhp.

The S1 will be powered by a 200bhp turbo engine driving all four corners for all-weather traction.

Prices will start from 16.000 euro.
